Lean, brown-haired filmmaker, principally a writer (he sold his first scripts to TV at 22) who became a director of cult blaxploitation and horror movies before reverting to a screenwriting career. After a decade writing TV series, he began directing his own films. Bone (1972) and Black Caesar (1973) were the first, but he burst on to the drive-in horror scene with It's Alive in 1974. Subsequent credits as director include God Told Me To (1976), The Private Files of J Edgar Hoover (1977), It Lives Again (1977), Full Moon High (1980), Q - The Winged Serpent (1982), Special Effects (1984), The Stuff (1985), It's Alive III: Island of the Alive (1987), Wicked Stepmother (1989), The Ambulance (1990), As Good As Dead (1994) and Original Gangstas (1996), his last, although he continued writing screenplays and teleplays until Messages Deleted in 2010.
